Good Morning Church! We’re experiencing some technical difficulties this morning. The live feed should be available soon.
Here is our order of worship liturgy for Sunday, August 2. We will livestream at 10:00am at City Pres. All are welcome.
SONG OF ADORATION
This Is Amazing Grace
Who breaks the power of sin and darkness
Whose love is mighty and so much stronger
The King of Glory, the King above all kings
Who shakes the whole earth with holy thunder
Who leaves us breathless in awe and wonder
The King of Glory, the King above all kings

This is amazing grace, This is unfailing love
That You would take my place, That You would bear my cross
You laid down Your life that I would be set free
Jesus, I sing for all that You've done for me

Who brings our chaos back into order
Who makes the orphan a son and daughter
The King of Glory, the King above all kings
Who rules the nations with truth and justice
Shines like the sun in all of its brilliance
The King of Glory, the King above all kings

Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave
Worthy is the Lamb who was slain
Worthy is the King who conquered the grave

CALL TO WORSHIP – Isaiah 55
Leader: Come, everyone who thirsts, come to the waters; and he who has no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. “Seek the Lord while he may be found; call upon him while he is near;
People: let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; let him return to the Lord, that he may have compassion on him, and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
Leader: For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.
People: For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Leader: “For as the rain and the snow come down from heaven and do not return there but water the earth, making it bring forth and sprout, giving seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
People: so shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it.
++
CONFESSION OF SIN
Leader: When we gather to praise God, we remember that we are people who have preferred our wills to his. Accepting his power to become new persons in Christ, let us confess our sin before God and one another.
All: Merciful God, we confess that so little of Your blessing reaches others through us. Our prayers have been too self-focused rather than expressing care for the well being of others. We are guilty of keeping silent when a word is needed and speaking when the greatest blessing would be to listen. We have been reluctant to share our table with the stranger as Christ has done. We have neglected to serve others when you have called us to love in actions and in truth. Forgive and transform us into disciples who graciously and authentically share the good news of Jesus Christ. In His name we pray. Amen.
++
ASSURANCE OF PARDON- 2 Corinthians 5:17
Leader: Hear the good news! Christ died and rose again for us, He reigns in power, and prays for us. Anyone who is in Christ is a new creation. The old life has gone and a new life has begun. Before the foundation of the world Christ forgave us, and forgives us still today. Let us forgive as we have been forgiven and share the peace of Christ. May the Peace of Christ be with you.
People: And also with you.
++
PASSING THE PEACE & ANNOUNCEMENTS
++
CONFESSION OF FAITH- Our World Belongs To God, st. 5-6
Leader: God holds this world in sovereign love. He kept his promise, sending Jesus into the world. He poured out his Spirit and broadcast his news that sinners who repent and believe in Jesus can live and breathe and move again as members of the family of God.

All: We rejoice in the goodness of God, renounce the works of darkness, and dedicate ourselves to holy living.

Leader: As covenant partners, called to faithful obedience, and set free for joyful praise, we offer our hearts and lives to do God’s work in his world. With tempered impatience, eager to see injustice ended, we expect the Day of the Lord.

All: And we are confident that the light that shines in the present darkness will fill the earth when Christ appears. Come, Lord Jesus! Our world belongs to you.

Christ Is Mine Forevermore
Mine are days that God has numbered
I was made to walk with Him
Yet I look for worldly treasure
And forsake the King of kings
But mine is hope in my Redeemer
Though I fall, his love is sure
For Christ has paid for every failing
I am His forevermore

Mine are tears in times of sorrow
Darkness not yet understood
Through the valley I must travel
Where I see no earthly good
But mine is peace that flows from heaven
And the strength in times of need
I know my pain will not be wasted
Christ completes his work in me

Mine are days here as a stranger
Pilgrim on a narrow way
One with Christ I will encounter
Harm and hatred for his name
But mine is armour for this battle
Strong enough to last the war
And he has said he will deliver
Safely to the golden shore

And mine are keys to Zion city
Where beside the King I walk
For there my heart has found its treasure
Christ is mine forevermore

Come rejoice now, O my soul
For his love is my reward
Fear is gone and hope is sure
Christ is mine forevermore!

SONG OF RESPONSE
His Mercy Is More
What love could remember no wrongs we have done
Omniscient, all knowing, He counts not their sum
Thrown into a sea without bottom or shore
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

Praise the Lord, His mercy is more
Stronger than darkness, new every morn
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

What patience would wait as we constantly roam
What Father, so tender, is calling us home
He welcomes the weakest, the vilest, the poor
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more

What riches of kindness He lavished on us
His blood was the payment, His life was the cost
We stood 'neath a debt we could never afford
Our sins they are many, His mercy is more
++
SONG OF CELEBRATION
Doxology
Praise God from whom all blessings flow
Praise Him all creatures here below
Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost
++
BENEDICTION – Psalm 19:14, Colossians 3:14
Leader: May the words of our mouths and the meditations of our hearts be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, our Rock and our Redeemer, and may whatever we do, whether in word or deed, may we do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him, and know this, He who began a good work in you will be faithful to complete it in the day of Christ Jesus. Come quickly, Lord Jesus. Amen.
The video to go with the post will be ready in about 15 minutes at 12:15p. Blessings, Dan
Noon Time Prayer – April 20, 2020

THE CALL -
But I, O Lord, cry to you;
in the morning my prayer comes before you.
(Psalm 88:13, the Sons of Korah)

THE PSALM (Psalm 15, by David)
1O Lord, who shall sojourn in your tent?
Who shall dwell on your holy hill?
2 He who walks blamelessly and does what is right
and speaks truth in his heart;
3 who does not slander with his tongue
and does no evil to his neighbor,
nor takes up a reproach against his friend;
4 in whose eyes a vile person is despised,
but who honors those who fear the Lord;
who swears to his own hurt and does not change;
5 who does not put out his money at interest
and does not take a bribe against the innocent.
He who does these things shall never be moved.

THE GLORIA
Glory be to the Father, and to the Son: and to the Holy Spirit;
As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be: world without end. Amen.

SILENCE (1 minute)

NEW TESTAMENT (Romans 3:1-20)
1Then what advantage has the Jew? Or what is the value of circumcision?2 Much in every way. To begin with, the Jews were entrusted with the oracles of God. 3 What if some were unfaithful? Does their faithlessness nullify the faithfulness of God? 4 By no means! Let God be true though every one were a liar, as it is written,
“That you may be justified in your words,
and prevail when you are judged.”

5 But if our unrighteousness serves to show the righteousness of God, what shall we say? That God is unrighteous to inflict wrath on us? (I speak in a human way.)6 By no means! For then how could God judge the world? 7 But if through my lie God's truth abounds to his glory, why am I still being condemned as a sinner?8 And why not do evil that good may come?—as some people slanderously charge us with saying. Their condemnation is just.

9 What then? Are we Jews any better off? No, not at all. For we have already charged that all, both Jews and Greeks, are under sin, 10 as it is written:
“None is righteous, no, not one;
11 no one understands;
no one seeks for God.
12 All have turned aside; together they have become worthless;
no one does good,
not even one.”
13 “Their throat is an open grave;
they use their tongues to deceive.”
“The venom of asps is under their lips.”
14 “Their mouth is full of curses and bitterness.”
15 “Their feet are swift to shed blood;
16 in their paths are ruin and misery,
17 and the way of peace they have not known.”
18 “There is no fear of God before their eyes.”

19 Now we know that whatever the law says it speaks to those who are under the law, so that every mouth may be stopped, and the whole world may be held accountable to God. 20 For by works of the law no human being will be justified in his sight, since through the law comes knowledge of sin.

PRAYER
O God, you have prepared in peace the path I must follow today.
Help me to walk straight on that path.
If I speak, remove lies from my lips.
If I am hungry, take away from me all complaint.
If I have plenty, destroy pride in me.
May I go through the day calling on you,
You, O Lord, who has no Lord. You are the Creator of heaven and earth, and of me.
Oromo prayer, Ethiopia (Adapted from An African Prayer Book by Desmond Tutu. ©2009 The Crown Publishing Group)

PROMPTED PRAYER
For an awareness of the presence of God in every moment of your day.
For the witness and hospitality of your congregation in its neighborhood.
For immigrants and refugees and those who minister to them.

THE LORD’S PRAYER

ABIDING (2 to 3 minutes)
Pause in the middle of this new Monday. Enjoy a few moments with the Living God, Father, Son, and Spirit. Listen for the voice of God in the Scriptures. Read. Meditate. Pray. Think about what you read. Seek God’s face.

Sunday Service

[08/21/21]   Hey all, I’m sure most of are you are aware that New Mexico is under another indoor mask mandate. This mandate applies to all people (ages 2 and older) regardless of their vaccination status.
Houses of worship are not exempt and are subject to a $5,000 fine if found in violation. Beginning this Sunday, we will follow the indoor mask requirement until September 15, as stated by the Governor of New Mexico.

At City, we have people who land all across the spectrum regarding these things. Some are sad, some frustrated, some relieved, all of us wishing the virus would wane, people would be safe & healthy & life could continue with a full sense of normalcy. In the midst of these challenges, my hope is that we would be gracious to one another in all things. City has always been a church that has entered into one another’s stories & lives & helped carry one another’s burdens, knowing & still loving one another. Let’s continue to do those things even as we go back to wearing masks & worshipping together. May God have mercy on us & may we be renewed by the union we share in Jesus. We’ll see you tomorrow 10:00 AM.

[08/20/21]   Please note: Due to the new public health order, we ask that you wear a mask indoors during our Worship Service, beginning this Sunday, 8/22. Thank you!

Join us for worship tomorrow at 10AM for Trinity Sunday.

*Please note, our new mask policy will be in effect. More details were sent in your weekly newsletter and will also be presented during worship tomorrow. Feel free to reach out with any questions.

"While every Christian worship service is a celebration of the Trinity, Trinity Sunday focuses explicitly on the mystery, power, and beauty of the triune God. Our Christian identity and mission are given to us as we are baptized in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (Matt. 28:19). Our worship is not only directed to the triune God but is also enabled by the prompting of the Holy Spirit and the mediation of Jesus Christ. At its best, our worship is also an expression of the unity and common purpose of the church, which Jesus prayed would reflect the unity between himself and God (John 17:20-21). Trinity Sunday, which is traditionally celebrated one week after Pentecost, marks the acknowledgment that all three persons of the Trinity exist together from eternity to eternity."

Join us for worship tomorrow at 10AM for Pentecost Sunday.

"Ten days after the ascension of Christ and fifty days after his resurrection, the Holy Spirit descended on the disciples on the day of Pentecost. Pentecost was an established Jewish festival also known as the Feast of Weeks, which drew people from many nations back to Jerusalem (Lev. 23:15-21; Deut. 16:16). Pentecost symbolizes a new beginning. It celebrates the unleashing of the Holy Spirit on the world and the empowering of the church to reach the world with the gospel. In celebrating Pentecost, the church expresses its gratitude for the faithfulness of Christ in fulfilling his promise to send “another counselor” (John 14:16); celebrates the work of the Spirit in renewing all of creation; professes its confidence and security in knowing the Spirit’s power is available for its mission; and grows in awareness of the immensity of its calling to reach the world with the gospel."
